We have had to have about 20 ash trees removed from our property due to damage and death caused by the emerald ash borer infestation. So, regarding this, I have three questions: 1. We discovered a couple colonies of large black (carpenter) ants. How do we get rid of these? We routinely put out baits/traps and spray around the house, but these appear to be coming from the woods. 2. We would like to replace about 1/2 of these trees as our yard looks bald now. What are some very fast growing, hardy trees that fourish in Ohio. (We have lots of moisture in our yard after rainstorms.) 3. We have heard you can claim restitution from the Department of Natural Resources or Forestry for trees lost to the emerald ash borer infestation. Are you able to provide information about this program?

Does OSU Extension offer help with water management plans for farms? We have a 23 acre (16 in production) intensive production mixed vegetable operation and would like to have a comprehensive irrigation and drainage plan that we could implement over a five year period. I know that we need to be able to pump 210 GPM to meet the vegetable crop benchmark of 3 inches of water per week, but am unsure what our pipe and distribution requirements will be. I have talked to a drainage contractor, but want to be sure that I am not digging up the same fields twice if I don't have to be. Who should I talk to about this important planning consideration?
